During WWDC, Apple unveiled iOS 7, and as rumours suggested, it was flat and completely simplified.
My first impression was that the new design was simply gorgeous, and that the fresh look brings some major excitement to iOS. I also felt that the control centre was a great addition.
As beautiful as the new design is, the animations and some gorgeous components/looks that I love from previous iOS versions are sadly assassinated. The new, flat design, which still looks stunning, exemplifies the hate I would usually have for a replacement that takes away my favourite look. The parallax on the springboard (home screen) adds an incredible look to the background behind your apps, and I really admire this new 3D achievement that has defeated my 3D pros from previous versions of iOS.
I perceive the control centre as the better version of SBSettings that jailbreakers everywhere have been waiting for. As much as Apple despises jailbreaking, it is quite essential that it exists and is so widely used, as many popular tweaks have quickly called iOS home after being added by Apple.
Airdrop is a handy feature to have on the Mac, so i'm actually really excited to be able to use it on my iPhone! Sending pictures, etc by MMS/iMessage/Facebook, etc will become a thing of the past as we just select share>airdrop and let the iPhone do the rest!
You're probably bored of me babbling on about iOS 7 almost a month after the release, so i'll keep this one short and sweet. Overall, iOS 7 has my tick of approval (which is very hard to obtain), and I will definitely be looking forward to the Sept-Nov period in which iOS 7 will be released!
And now I ask, do you like the overall design of iOS 7? Please vote on the poll below and leave a comment in the comments section; i'd love to hear from all of you!
